The noble Portuguese surname Raposo is of nickname origin, as it is derived from a physical or personal characteristic of the original bearer. In this instance, the surname Raposo comes directly from the Portuguese word "Raposo," translated as "male fox" and in turn derived from the Portuguese "raboso" meaning "tail," with reference to the beautiful furry tail of that animal.
